OhioMeansSkills

Welcome Employers!

OhioMeansSkills Communities are made up of multiple stakeholders and businesses committed to using skill scores to hire high-quality, qualified employees. The scores provide evidence of applicants’ skills and their ability to learn on the job.

Extensive research on nearly 20,000 occupations has identified applied mathematics, listening for understanding and reading for information as three foundational skills that are essential to success in most jobs. For that reason, several OhioMeansSkills Communities advocate the use of the following ACT WorkKeys® assessments: Applied Mathematics, Reading for Information and Locating Information. The recommended scores for these three tests appear with each job posting on OhioMeansJobs.com.
